HKIRC to Launch .香港 IDNccTLD Free to .HK customers.
In a recent press release, Chinese registry HKIRC announced that will offer free registrations of the new .香港 domain (IDNccTLD) for current .HK customers in the second half of 2010. After the ‘.香港’ introduction, existing English or Chinese ‘.hk’ domain holders can use full Chinese characters on the internet. According to the release, their goal is to promote Chinese domain names and allow users to experience the internet in their own language/dialect.
